Simcraft's stat weights

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone !

With our stat weights depending on our gear I wanted to check out how close haste and crit were.

SC kind of shocked me with the following stat weights :

Crit : 2,9232

Mastery: 1,9852

Haste : 1.6447

I did 50000 iterations with a 450 sec Patchwerk fight.

Then I reforged as the stat weights told me and did another SC with the same options, obtaining :

Crit : 2,8957

Mastery : 2,0057

Haste : 1,5687

I never heard about fire mages preferring mastery over haste, so I want to ask you guys if I should follow these stat weights or go with the traditional crit>haste>mastery ?

If you have the Tier 13 4-piece bonus, it could be explained by the fact that you get to cast Combustion a lot more frequently, thus increasing the amount of damage you do with DoTs, and in turn, increasing the benefits you get from your Mastery.

I understand that, though all high end raiding mages have the 4T13 and they still avoid mastery as much as possible.

Do you think I should reforge to mastery or haste after crit ?

I think you should go for Critical Strike Rating and then for Haste Rating. There has to be something wrong with the simulation results.

      Hi Everyone,

      Returning to D3 after an absence.
      Trying to figure out the best desired stat rolls for items as per the guides, have always struggled with this.
      Am deciding to play DH Shadow Impale build this season 25. For example:

      The Compass Rose
      1. Socket
      2. Critical Hit Chance
      3. Critical Hit Damage
      4. Area Damage or Attack Speed
      So am I looking for a ring rolled with all these stats? Because most of the time it will roll with Dexterity. So wouldn't it be unlikely that I would find such a ring? 
      If I had one with say Dex,CHD,socket and Attack speed    -     should I reroll Dex into CHC? Doesn't this defeat the purpose of Ancients? (as the ancient would have possible higher Dex but not higher CHC)
      What if CHD was really low and Dex was really high? What if overall damage goes down because I re-roll Dex?
      I'm confused. Just trying to figure out how to decide between 2 items.
      EG: I have 2 Convention of Elements
      Priorities are:
      1. Socket
      2. Critical Hit Chance
      3. Critical Hit Damage
      4. Area Damage or Attack Speed
      Ring A (Ancient):                Ring B (non-Ancient):
      +618 Dexterity                     +473 Dexterity
      CHD : + 46% (rolled)            + 49% (rolled)
      CHC: + 4.5%                           +5.0%
      Socket                                     Socket
      The game shows no difference in damage but minus in toughness and recovery on Ring B (must be secondary stats)
       
      Which Ring is better? (should I choose?)
      Thanks for any explanation of this. Especially @Deadset

      This thread is for comments about our Mozaki OTK Mage guide.

      So the stat priority page of the guide ranks haste much higher than strength but the consumables guide recommends the feast for strength even though the haste food offers more haste which should make it the better choice surely?
      Hoping someone more aware of the theorycrafting to clear that up for me.
       
      This mainly applies for raiding by the way but if there is a different answer for M+ I am interested to know the answer there.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks ?
